. the increase in taxes according to president obama right now, by taxing the wealthy. you know, if you just allow the tax rates to go up to clinton era tax rates in the top two brackets, that would only raise $34 billion. last year we experienced a $1,090 billion deficit. you might get up to $80 billion. again, $80 billion versus that. so that's the revenue he wants to raise. that's what he hoodwinked the american people into believing that that's going to soft the debt issue. it doesn't even close the deficit by 8%. where the spending cuts? he talks about one dollar for three, one dollar for two and a half. i have yet to see a proposal out of this administration, or democrats in the senate who haven't passed a budget in three and a half years. so listen, i think republicans are willing to compromise for democrats. but but need to see their plan. i've never seen their plan. the only thing we've seen out of this president, out of democrats, is let's increase taxes, punish success. the most that will generate revenue $80 billion a year, talking about $1,090 billion deficit. where are the spen

is president obama on all of this? let's get right to our special guest this evening. we have former assistant secretary of state rich williamson and syndicated radio talk show host john boutzer. how much injury they inflict on hamas? i want to know if the total blowout is possible? >> yes, it is, larry. why that is critical is because egypt is involved profoundly in this problem. morici, the new le elely electe president of egypt, is in the muslim brothers. the muslim brothers and hamas are directly related. this is about egypt and the 1979 peace treaty. >> right. i'm going to get back to the whole issue of the spreading war. but i'm just real interested in the assessment, ambassador williamson, welcome back, that israel can just inflict massive, permanent damage on hamas and their alleged military. >> well, larry, first of all, i think it's really important to take a step back. we've been involved in a presidential election that sucked up the oxygen. hamas is a group that's recognized as a terrorist organization by the u.s. government, the israeli government and the european union, has incre

curious. it's right after the u.s. elections are over, president obama made a deal, gave israel iron dome and then all of a sudden, there's no incursion into gaza. right after our elections are done, all of a sudden on november 8 a two week lull in violence is broken by israel when they shoot and kill a 12-year-old boy. you might say it's an accident. every time a civilian is killed, israel says it's an accident. there's an awful lot of accidents. then there was a ceasefire and in this case, israel broke the ceasefire by killing jubarek. why did israel start the aggression november 8 and break the ceasefire? >> there have been three ceasefires in the last month all violated by the terror groups. egypt mediated quietly to bring quiet to the region. three times in the last month and there have been 300 rockets fired at israel within the last month from inside gaza. every time we try to reach a ceasefire with hamas, it was violated from their side. we don't want the rocket fire. we'd be crazy to want rocket fire on tel aviv tonight. we have 5 million people under rocket fire from tel aviv to

obama told benjamin netanyahu that he understands israel's right to self-defense in light of countless rocket attacks on israeli civilians being launched from gaza. the president urged that prime minister netanyahu make every effort to avoid civilian casualties. do we think this administration has were leverage in making sure that happens? >> i mean, the israelis really feel that they have gone too far. they simply could not hold back from defending themselves because of the hundreds of attacks. trying to stop that, trying to tell israel not to defend itself is really impossible, but that said, the danger of this, of course escalation and all-out war is really very high. that's why this administration is trying to, you know, urge both sides to stop. it's obviously not being very successful. >> you know, tony blair has put a lot of political capital in this trying to come up with a peace agreement for the middle east. he spoke about this recently, what he sees is happening. i want to play a little bit for you. >> the single thing that's most important straight away is to try and calm th
